Listening to and learning from two senior community volunteers

In this newsletter, we profile two FLA OHT volunteers who speak about their experiences as seniors in our community, actively engaged and using our health and wellness systems. We spoke with Nona Mariotti, who lives in rural Frontenac County and Helen Cooper, who lives in the city of Kingston. We heard from both about their views on aging, programs and activities for seniors in the region and what motivated them to get involved with the FLA OHT.
